Re: 1983 Original owner rebuild completion.

Beautiful rebuild man. These belong on the road and not the scrapyard. Enjoy that T4WD!

Re: 1983 Tercel Wagon 4WD SR5 | My Worst/Best Decision of my Life?

I’m going to get started with the rear drum brakes as soon as I receive all parts. Hopefully I didn’t miss anything… I've never worked on a car with drums so I watched ChrisFix's Guide to familiarize myself with drum systems. The ULTIMATE Guide on How to Replace Drum Brakes https://youtu.be/Q5j3sKgN...

Let me know if you end up parting it out. I need a few things... Since you're in California I can drive up to you for the larger parts.

Re: 1983 Tercel Wagon 4WD SR5 | My Worst/Best Decision of my Life?

Thanks Petros! I had already installed the rotors and pads this past Thursday. I was just updating the thread. Luckily I saw your brake upgrade thread before I pulled the trigger on new T4WD calipers. I have it bookmarked now for the next time I service the front brakes. I'll make the switch then. L...

Re: 1983 Tercel Wagon 4WD SR5 | My Worst/Best Decision of my Life?

After it's 984 mile maiden voyage to LA. I thought it would be a good idea to replace the brake components (since ya know LA traffic...). I don’t want to pay someone to do it #becauseteachersalary and I know I have enough mechanical experience to knock out the job and YouTube lol... I decided to sta...

Re: How to install pathfinder springs?

If you're using pathfinder springs (Moog CC247) the corresponding rear shocks are KYB #343162 . I would assume you still have to drill out the bushings and replace them with stock tercel bushings but #2 - The Abra-Cadaver Lift from https://tercel4wd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=13106&hilit=Definit...

Re: 1984 Trukcel!

Iggzmon, I swapped to Moog 81043 springs in front and stayed with stock struts, love it. I run the Pathfinder springs on the rear and have approximately 2” lift or so over stock.

Re: 1983 Tercel SR5 4WD on Copart in Eugene, OR

This road trip reminds me of the Roadkill boys on their adventures. I was hoping to do the same with a recently acquired 1987 Subaru RX coupe, but after a quick test drive I noticed a coolant leak, so onto the U-Haul it went. ...The Professor zooms by, New Edition's "Cool It Now" blasting from a pa...
